neuter gender

Postby omgitzsteph11990!!! » Fri Feb 20, 2009 7:29 pm

I am a student studying Latin from Lingua Latina. I am on chapter 5, and wondering about the neuter gender. On page 15 of the exercitia, in the margin at the bottom, they show examples with the singular and plural, in nominative and accussitive cases. If they show the ending "um" singular in both nominative and accussative, will it always be "a" in plural?

I am sorry I m mistaken please forgive me for my incorrect data. I am mistaking the neuter gender for the feminine gender. :oops:
